The OPT photoelectric sensor series feature high-resolution CMOS line array technology and Class 1 or Class 2 laser options
The OPT series of short and long range distance photoelectric sensors are available with either Class 1 or Class 2 laser options and are constructed with rectangular plastic housings and fitted with an M12 quick-disconnect. OPT short-range diffuse distance sensors utilize high-resolution CMOS line array technology, eliminating material, color and brightness-related measurement differences. Analog and switch output models are available with sensing ranges from 30 to 660mm, at up to 1,500 scans per second. Diffuse styles have a sensing range up to 10 meters; retro-reflective styles sense up to 100 meters. Analog and switch output models are available.

Annual Salary Survey
Before the calendar turned, 2016 already had the makings of a pivotal year for manufacturing, and for the world.
There were the big events for the year, including the United States as Partner Country at Hannover Messe in April and the 2016 International Manufacturing Technology Show in Chicago in September. There's also the matter of the U.S. presidential elections in November, which promise to shape policy in manufacturing for years to come.
But the year started with global economic turmoil, as a slowdown in Chinese manufacturing triggered a worldwide stock hiccup that sent values plummeting. The continued plunge in world oil prices has resulted in a slowdown in exploration and, by extension, the manufacture of exploration equipment.
